Panels Everywhere is an advanced method to completely do away with Drupal's restrictive blocks system and instead use the much more freeing Panels Layout system to control how your pages look. Panels Everywhere modifies the page as it is being rendered to 'wrap' the content in a display and can even take over your page theme to do away with the need for a page.tpl.php.

Doing this requires that you set up a few things properly, because Drupal is not really designed for this kind of behavior. Be sure to read the README before trying to use this module.

This module requires both the Panels module, and the Page Manager module from the Chaos Tools Suite.
